Great spot overlooking the marina. Lovely menu and very popular place - it was very full. Great food.

Great atmosphere and lovely location, especially on outside tables overlooking the Marina. Staff friendly but very slow on takeaway coffees (15 minutes plus wait). I had coffee once and lunch twice, both times very enjoyable, though the lunch menu did not have as much variety as the dinner menu. Some of the lunch menu items, such as Thai Fishcakes, were starter sized portions which would have been fine if we'd known, but we didn't. So we ended up staying longer and ordering bread and hummus as well. Food was great, though the lunch menu was much more limited than the dinner one. Would highly recommend unless you are ordering takeaway coffees in a hurry, and with the caveat that it's worth making sure the lunch time options are one of the larger ones if you are remotely hungry.

Nice place, great location. very nice house Pinot Gris and draught Tiger Beer, not the cheapest but certainly not extortionate. Very quick and friendly service.

My wife and I came up to Tutukaka last weekend for some diving around the Poor Knughts Island. We arrived early evening and went to Schnappa Rock for an early dinner. The food we had was really excellent, including the chicken liver parfait, and the delicious sausage and mash. The choice of beers here was excellent, and the service was very helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend if you are in the area!

Best coastal area we've been to in NZ (nth and sth island, great friendly feel), Snapper Rock topped it off with lovely food, awesome service and just a great place to be!! The staff and managers all go out of their way to ensure we had a great dining experience.
